Kim Kardashian knows that she has a selfie addiction. In Adweeks new Mobile Issue, the 34-year-old selfie queen admitted that her obsession is “ridiculous,” but said she has no plans to stop. “So many people think that taking selfies is just ridiculous. For me, what’s so funny is I love taking pictures and posting them on social media just for memories,” she said. “I’m kind of letting them know, yes, it is ridiculous, but it’s all fun.”

The reality star explained, “I take it more as a fun, emotional scrapbook that I love to look back on.” Kardashian, who just passed a staggering 27 million followers on Instagram, added, “It’s not that I brand myself like I’m a celebrity. It’s just I’m living my life and sharing a part of my life with the world.” Kanye West’s wife also revealed that she’s been taking selfies since 1984 and she doesn’t see herself stopping anytime in the near future.

“I love sharing my world with people, so I don’t see me just having a freak-out and just stopping,” Kardashian told Adweek. “Will I do it forever? I’m not sure. But I love the whole idea of it, especially because you get to share things your way.” Of course, another way she gets to share glimpses of her life with fans is through the family’s just-renewed reality show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” entering its 10th season.

Kardashian said that she believes one of the reasons so many people tune into the show each week is because her family is so relatable. “They may not think we’re normal, [but] we are a family like everyone else’s that goes through so many different things and we’re always there to support each other,” she said. “There’s always a family member that someone can relate to… We still have a few more years left in us.” Indeed. What do you think of Kim Kardashian’s comments about her selfie obsession and her “normal” family?
